Rending Wave (裂破衝 Reppashou?, "Split Break Rush") is a strike arte in the Tales series commonly associated with Veigue Lungberg from Tales of Rebirth and the Paladin class from the Radiant Mythology series of games.
Arte Description and History
When this arte is activated, the user slashes twice in quick succession in the fashion of an "X". In Tales of Rebirth, this arte affects the line Veigue is currently standing on, as well as all lines adjacent to it. Due to the nature of the attack, however, enemies on adjacent lines usually only suffer one hit. In addition, when the assigned Force Gauge is full and the talisman "Mouko no Tamashii" (猛虎の魂?) is equipped, Veigue will use the classic arte Kogahazan instead. Despite sharing the same pronunciation in Japanese, this version of Reppashou is unrelated to the attack used by the Warrior class, localized as Raging Blast, which has a different set of kanji and vastly different effect. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is Earth-elemental.
